Ruling the Roost: Louisa Pyne’s ‘Rules and Regulations’ for running an opera company

Abstract:
These printed sets of rules are my chosen operatic objects, two sets to be precise, ones that regulated the behavior of the performers at two of London’s opera venues. One was the King’s Theatre, or the Opera House, the institution that (for much of the 18th and early 19th centuries) was the venue for the performance of foreign language opera and dance. The second was that venue’s successor, the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, which took over from the King’s Theatre in the early 1840s as London’s premier home of elite opera and dance.
